There is no doubt about the unique properties of thalassotherapy - algae wraps help to restore the figure to slimness, tone the skin and effectively fight overweight and cellulite.
The main component for such procedures most often becomes kelp - seaweed, rich in vitamins A, C, E, D and B group, as well as valuable amino acids. They help to improve the condition of the skin, and alginate obtained from kelp is the basis of most anti-cellulite gels, creams and masks.
BeautyHack tells all about kelp wrapping, which will help you quickly tidy up your figure both in the salon and at home.
Types of wraps
Depending on the need, kelp wraps can be done on different parts of the body: thighs, abdomen, arms and even chest (see 5 other wraps worth trying here). They can be hot, cold, or contrasting.
Hot wraps with laminaria improve blood microcirculation and accelerate the breakdown of subcutaneous fat. This procedure opens the pores, which accelerates the process of removing toxins and toxins from the body.
Cold laminaria wraps stimulate the lymphatic drainage system, relieve swelling and remove excess fluid from the body. This procedure is also recommended when you need to relax and release tension.
Laminaria contrast wraps combine both hot and cold effects - a sharp temperature drop and the active components of algae help fight cellulite and fat deposits most effectively.
To make you happy with the result, experts advise doing a laminaria wrap in the evening - in the afternoon, all metabolic and recovery processes in the body proceed faster.
Before the procedure, you need to warm up the skin to open the pores and prepare it for the next step. If you are doing the kelp wrap at home, you can take a hot bath or shower. In the salon, you will be offered more interesting options, for example, visiting boors or a cedar barrel.
Now the heated skin is thoroughly cleansed with a scrub or peeling - so the active substances of the algae will penetrate deeper and work more efficiently. At this stage, the salon uses special products that not only exfoliate dead cells, but also saturate the skin with minerals, and also nourish and moisturize it.
After cleansing, you can proceed to the wrapping itself - sheets of kelp or a special paste made of algae powder are applied to problem areas of the body, and to enhance the effect, a thermal blanket is placed on top - at home it can be replaced with cling film. During the wrapping, iodine and other active microelements of algae penetrate deeply into the skin, therefore this procedure tightens loose skin, makes it elastic, reduces the appearance of cellulite, helps to reduce weight and improve body contours.
The effect after the wrap is fixed by the final stage, during which a special cream or lotion is applied to the already clean skin with massage movements - it additionally tones the skin, makes it soft and velvety (read about anti-cellulite massage products that really work here).
You will notice the first results after just one procedure - the skin will become more elastic and smoother. But if you want to noticeably correct the silhouette and remove a few extra centimeters from problem areas of the body, it is better to go through a course of wraps - usually it is 8-12 procedures. You can do them once a week and repeat the course every year for prevention.
However, do not forget that only in combination with proper nutrition and sports activities, kelp wrap will give you the result you expect.
An important point
Laminaria wrapping promotes weight loss and helps to restore skin tone, but, like any procedure, it has its own contraindications. It can provoke allergic reactions, for example, to iodine or other components of algae. Also, wrapping should be abandoned for diseases such as varicose veins, the presence of inflammatory processes in the body or ulcers on the skin, cardiovascular, viral and oncological diseases.
Do not forget that before any procedure it is always better to consult with a specialist who can answer all your questions and recommend the caring complex that is right for you (you can find the 5 best body shaping procedures in the summer here).
